AGREEMENT STATE - STOLEN TROXLER NUCLEAR DENSITY GAUGE

The following report was received from the State of Florida Bureau of Radiation Control via email:

"[A] Troxler nuclear density gauge model 3440, device serial number 24596, was checked out from [the licensee's] office on Saturday afternoon, May 28th, to take it for repairs. The locked vehicle containing the gauge was parked in a secured parking garage. The vehicle was stolen at 0708 [EDT] according to surveillance video. The vehicle was discovered missing at approximately 1100 [EDT]. [The] City of Miami Police were called immediately.

"Case #160529-161287 filed by [Miami Police]."

Troxler gauge source: Am-241/Be - 40mCi, Cs-137 - 8mCi (originally).

Florida Incident Number: FL16-069

THIS MATERIAL EVENT CONTAINS A "LESS THAN CAT 3" LEVEL OF RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL

Sources that are "Less than IAEA Category 3 sources," are either sources that are very unlikely to cause permanent injury to individuals or contain a very small amount of radioactive material that would not cause any permanent injury. Some of these sources, such as moisture density gauges or thickness gauges that are Category 4, the amount of unshielded radioactive material, if not safely managed or securely protected, could possibly - although it is unlikely - temporarily injure someone who handled it or were otherwise in contact with it, or who were close to it for a period of many weeks.

BOTH SECONDARY CONTAINMENT DOORS OPEN SIMULTANEOUSLY

"At 1030 EDT on 6/7/2016, both doors of a secondary containment airlock were reported to be simultaneously open for approximately 2 seconds during the normal passage of personnel. The brief time that the doors were simultaneously open constitutes an inoperable condition of secondary containment. Secondary containment differential pressure was maintained throughout the time period that the doors were open.

"This event is being reported under 10 CFR 50.72(b)(3)(v)(C) and per the guidance of NUREG-1022, Rev. 3, 'any event or condition that at the time of discovery could have prevented the fulfillment of the safety function of structures or systems that are needed to control the release of radioactive material.'"

The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector.
